Integrated in the Master in Medical Informatics of the University of Porto, and supported by the Portugal Chapter of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, I would like to invite you to participate in the first of this year's Lecture Series on Medical Informatics 2014. These talks are open and adequate for researchers with any scientific background.
Title: Analysis of Medical Images based on Computational Methods of Image Registration
Speaker: Prof. João Tavares, FEUP, Portugal
Location: Amphitheatre 2, Department of Computer Science, FCUP
Short bio: João Manuel R. S. Tavares is graduated in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Porto, Portugal (1992). He also earned his M.Sc. degree and Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Porto in 1995 and 2001, respectively. He is a senior researcher and project coordinator at the Institute of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management (INEGI) and an Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP).
João Tavares is co-editor of more than 30 books, co-author of more than 25 book chapters, 550 articles in international and national journals and conferences, and 3 international and 2 national patents. He has been a committee member of several international and national journals and conferences, is co-founder and co-Editor of the book series “Lecture Notes in Computational Vision and Biomechanics” published by Springer, founder and Editor-in-Chief of the journal “Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering: Imaging & Visualization” published by Taylor & Francis, and co-founder and co-chair of the international conference series: CompIMAGE, ECCOMAS VipIMAGE, ICCEBS and BioDental. Also, he has been (co-)supervisor of several MSc and PhD thesis and supervisor of several post-doc projects, and has participated in many scientific projects both as researcher and as scientific coordinator.
His main research areas include computational vision, medical imaging, computational mechanics, scientific visualization, human-computer interaction and new product development.
